Wednesday 23rd October 2019 1-8pm

Commodore Hotel

 

On Wednesday October 23rd we are hosting a major community event about responding to the climate emergency.
 
Our aim is to bring together local people to speak out and listen to one another to share in exploring what kind of a joint response we ‘the community’ can make to the threat to us and future generations.
 
It’s ‘not-a-conference’ because the purpose is not to give out information from experts:  instead we want to share the concerns of local people and consider how we might be able to influence our future – together.
 
There are three themes:
Land and the Environment
Health and Well-being
Young People
 
The plan for the day is for us to look at
1. The symptoms of climate change in our community
2. What we believe are the underlying problems 
3. What tools and resources we have available to help us to make changes
4. What outcomes we can hope for 
 
Check HERE for our latest draft programme. This may change but in essence will remain the same.  The event will be held at the Commodore Hotel in Llandrindod Wells.  Funding has been made available by the Transition Group and the now closed Powys Transition and Low Carbon Communities project (PTLCC) to support the event.
 

Tickets are available from the Herb Garden Community Café, Sugar and Spice Bistro and Van’s Good Food Shop in town, or by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Community Survey

The Welsh Assembly Government has declared a ‘Climate Emergency’ and that includes us in and around Llandrindod. We are carrying out a survey to understand your views (and perhaps fears) in advance of a community summit on climate change we are organising in Llandrindod on 23rd October. Please complete the survey by Friday 27th September.
